Wow - what a memory blast. It was 1967 and I was a UCLA student and a jazz elitist driving around WLA. Accidentally tuned to a new free-form radio station called KPPC. Heard 'Outside Woman Blues' by the Cream and turned on to the road of sex, drugs, and you-know-what. Shortly after I went to my first rock concert - Jimi H @ UCLA. Dang I'm old.

CREAM does it again! Way to go DH; made my day...

For me, there were so many that seemed so impactful at the time.

"SOYLove" by CREAM and "DBTRiver" by NYoung were impt ones for me as I'd started thinking of girls by then; "PHaze" by Jimi and a few others given similar interest, just underway, with drugs; and just like ARose, "Get Together" by Youngbloods, "TYCWell", "Ohio", "FWIWorth", and many others were critical as they spoke to what I thought was impt at the time, while being too young to really know (ie, changing values, questioning the system, blah, blah, blah).
